 Summary of the article To Be Responsible, or Not To Be Responsible, that is the Question – Week 2’

Dr Chris Staff 6th November 2020

  1. In the last week virtually all countries included in the study have experienced a further increase in the 14-day rate of new notifications per 100000 population, with the exception of Ireland and Finland.
  2. Countries have imposed total lockdowns (UK, France, Belgium, and Germany), regional lockdowns (Italy and Denmark), partial national lockdowns (Austria, Portugal), and increased measures (Netherlands, Norway, Greece, and Spain).
  3. Malta’s rate is relatively steady compared to last week, but is still at too high a rate and various medical associations are warning that hospitals will be unable to simultaneously cope with severe coronavirus cases and other medical emergencies.
  4. Compared to when schools had been open for five weeks in other countries, Malta is still registering the highest 14-day rate of new notifications per 100000 population.
  5. What happens next is down to each and every one of us. If people don’t properly practice social distancing, face mask wearing, and hand washing; if people meet socially to eat and drink (and take off their masks) in the presence of people from other households; if good practices are not followed in workplaces where it is essential for employees to share workspaces; then coronavirus will be given the change to spread from one household to another.

  • Because the young and the younger adults still feel they have low or no risk of complications, Because a large section of these cohort follow the shenanigans of the antilockdown and pro business PM because only a few of these actually realize they are putting others or their loved ones in danger and most have money issues, either to survive (somewhat justified) or to keep making spadefulls of money (compleyi criminal), there will always be too many spreaders around. Thr rates will not go down with current provisions, level of enforcement and attitude of a sizable section if tge population. We are niw entering the long haul. In August I estimated we reach 100 fatalities by Christmas and 130 by end January. I was too optimistic thinking that Fearne would force his hand and take ovey what needs to be rskei over.
